Hello Julien Mirault,
The whole point of a MILITARY MODEL
is for PARTS interchangeability
... AMONG the
estimated 17 million produced... (Not rare).
To tell precisely which of the "303
you might have... you need
only read about the models below...
Three main characteristics (From 1895 to 1962)
- REAR Sight position & windage
- Clip FEEDING brace atop/rear of chamber
- Magazine capacity
Check at the Wiki article (above)...
or FEEDING "stripper clip
Stripper clip Wikipedia
the internet... once you have typed in "Enfield 303"
The only remaining concern you ought be
confronted with... is what "STYLE" synthetic
STOCK you will want... (personally I love the wood
My best advice would be to pay attention to
characteristics that would reduce the KICK
(pretty powerful) back
of this rifle when fired.
Condition: That is truly a shame...
but AS the markings are mostly lost that means
the finish is likely also been worn away...
So from a "collectible" standpoint there is no
probable significance... (unless historic
The Lee Enfield "303" highly recognizable by
the very long barrel and FULL wood stock...
The 303 strikes a beautiful profile when converted
as a "hunting rifle" ... (like: Monte Carlo STOCK)
